News: Ruby The Hatchet Release First Video Single and New Album Details

Ruby The Hatchet have released the literally killer video clip “Thruster” as the first single from the forthcoming album Fear Is a Cruel Master. The New Jersey psychedelic heavy rockers will present their hotly anticipated new full-length on October 21.

Watch the stunning video for “Thruster,” which follows the exploits of a murderous gang of female bikers in the style of a ’70’s B-movie in glorious Technicolor:

Ruby The Hatchet comment:

“The first single, ‘Thruster’, is an up-tempo, standout song that our drummer Owen brought to the table.”

Singer Jillian Taylor states:

“Between the band fleshing it out, and Owen and myself doing double duty with vocal writing, ‘Thruster’ was a no-brainer for the first preview of our new album. Its gallop beat and menacing guitar riff immediately had me envisioning something ominous. We all love old campy horror and sci-fi and have come to picture our music videos as fun short films that should be representative, but not taken too seriously. After re-watching a lot of Grindhouse, creating a storyboard for those visions, and assembling the perfect crew to pull it off (Hayden Hall, Ben Mazz, Don Vincent Ortega, and some of our most badass motorcycle riding friends), all of this came to life (and, as you’ll see, death) in a super fun and uniquely Ruby way.”
